Yahoo! Sportacular iPad App
Citizen Sports has joined forces with Yahoo to pair one of the best iPhone sports apps, Sportacular, for a complete overhaul of the already popular app. The most recent September update has cleaned up the interface and expanded the Sportacular app’s compatibility with the iPad. For the iPad, Sportacular lets you check scores, stats, and play-by-play updates for MLB, NCAA Football, and NFL games. While the iPhone app covers almost all sports, expanded coverage will come to the Sportacular iPad app in updates to come.
Sportacular features a clean design, features live up-to-the-minute updates, and is very stable as the app didn’t crash at all through a full Sunday of NFL games.
The app is only available in landscape mode, but makes the most of every pixel on the screen. Select from MLB, NFL, or NCAA Football from a filter on the top corner of the app. A short left navigation breaks down the scores for the day. While the main content section features a live score and allows you to filter between play-by-play, game stats, and scoring breakdowns. Sportacular settings allow you to adjust the frequency for the app’s auto-refresh, but compared to other sports apps like the CBS Football App, I’m very impressed with how quickly scores and plays are update in the app.
With the latest Yahoo integration, fantasy followers everywhere can only salivate for the day Yahoo Fantasy Sports updates gets integrated into the app.
Sportacular is a must own free app for sports fans and makes a great companion while you’re at the office or geeking out over your fantasy team on Sundays. Which by the way, I’m totally guilty of the latter.
